Essendon Quilters Quilt Show

This past weekend Somerset Patchwork was invited to trade at the Essendon Patchworkers Quilt Show held at the Incinerator Arts Complex, Moonee Ponds. The committee had created a wonderful atmosphere for all who attended. We were greeted by this delightful collection of handmade birds floating from the ceiling. 

The theme for this years challenge quilts was 'Birds and Baskets'.

The quilts were displayed over three separate levels, it was a wonderful hanging space; light and airy and very welcoming! 

How is this for an amazing collection! Good old fashioned gingham aprons, many owned by the quilt show committee. Do you have one of these classics in a draw at home? (I think I still do!) They were very sweet and reminded me of my teenage years and sewing classes at high school!

Until next time,


  1. What a great hanging space. Love the birds!!
